The Deputy Majority Leader, Hon Oboro Preyor had after the presentation of the amendment bill and the need for it, moved for the suspension of House Rule 12, 78 and 79 to enable the House take the third reading and pass.
Hon Preyor said clauses three and four of the principal law had provided for three campuses of the Delta State University, including the Anwai campus of the university.

The motions for the suspension of the relevant rules and that of the third reading of the amendment bill were seconded by Hon Solomon Ighrakpata, Uvwie and Peter Uviejitobor, Udu, respectively and adopted.
